Vocational Education in Correctional Institutions. Final Report.
Rush, Ralph A.
Leaders in public and institutional vocational education discussed the needs, characteristics, and problems of inmates in correctional institutions at a 2-week seminar, in order to provide a basis for program planning and curriculum development. The general objective was elaborated into twelve programatic objectives which include the following: (1) exploring techniques for conceptualizing the problems of inmates, (2) developing the concept that special methods and materials are necessary, (3) developing techniques for working with the leadership of local school systems, and (4) developing individual "working" guidelines to assist supervisors and teacher educators in program planning. This final report includes participant activities and involvement, the seminar plan, seminar staff, and a list of participants. Abstracts of speeches presented during the seminar are included; complete texts of all presentations are contained in a preliminary report which is available as VT 010 872. (CH)
